my daughter 30yrs old she has been having headaches for more than three years but last few months the headache became severe and she also has back pain.She has been on off the counter drugs.

Recently she started fainting and at times having zeizures.she regains counciousness after some few minutes.We took her to a neural surgeon when the zeizures persisted she was given nedication to control zeizures but she still faints twice in a day.

we do not know what to do next.can any one help?

Your daughter might consider asking for a referral to an electrophysiologist (heart rhythm specialist) for advice. Does your daughter faint at any particular triggers? You can download our blackouts checklist from and complete it which might help your doctor offer a diagnosis.


Lately a rheumatologist concluded that my daughter who is now 31yrs suffer fibromyalgia.I am told it is not curable.

Is this true and how do we cope with this situation.She has not been able to resume her employment for four months now.

She normally complains of being fatigued and joint/nerves pain shooting spradolically.There times she would look perfect then next day she is completely down.

Anyone with experience with fibromyalgia can help please.
